SEATTLE- Boy Armed with APP Helps Nab Suspect in Burglary

Here is a recent story from "The Seattle Times" that talks about how a burglary victim helped the police to find a stolen cell phone and some other stolen items. Two points come out of this story:

  1. The police need help from the victim. Any information that you can provide about your property or about potential suspects can help with an investigation. Sometimes that can mean checking eBay or similar sales websites or checking with the local pawn shop. In this case, the victims used modern technology to pinpoint the location of the stolen cell phone.
  2. With cell/smart phones, there are apps that you can use to help locate your lost or stolen phone. Be sure to install a locating app on your smart phone and/or know how your cell phone provider can help to find your phone.
